Context

Facebook is one of the most popular sites among Moroccans, and also is the inspiration for SimSim-Participation Citoyenne to create a site that allows citizens to communicate with MPs.

And as part of a Poplus community, they created Nouabook.ma, which is built on top of Write-It and allows to send messages to MPs and receive public answers, much in the way you would do if you wanted to reach someone on Facebook.

My Role

As a developer helping Nouabook my mission was to integrate it with Write-It and advising the team on technical matters.

I have also lately been helping SimSim with updating their dataset.

Results

Since its launch in 2014, it has had over 160 messages from citizens. The site has 72 questions published and 24 MPs from 8 different parties have responded to 30 of those questions.
